Superstar Salman Khan is currently shooting for his upcoming EID 2018 release Race 3 but he has a film lined up for the EID of 2019 by the name of ‘Bharat’ which is being directed by ‘Sultan’ director Ali Abbas Zafar. Apparently Salman will be seen in 5 different looks in Bharat, timeline of which will span over 60 years. By the tonality it sounds like a really ambitious project as it might cover the Indian political scenarios from India-Pakistan partition to the contemporary times.
Salman might play a character who has lived through all the wars faced by India including 1965, 1971, Kargil to the general contemporary times. Salman has just delivered the biggest blockbuster of his career by the name of Tiger Zinda Hai with director Ali Abbas Zafar which is the reason why both of them could be banking very hard on each other for their upcoming film. After finishing the shoot of Race 3, Salman will walk into the sets of Bharat as the shooting days of the film might be stretched over a long period of time considering the scope and scale of the film.
As a superstar Salman is quite keen on doing big films with massive reach to maximum number of people, which is why perhaps he has announced the sequel to his 2014 blockbuster Kick which will hit the theaters on Christmas of 2019. Salman and his producers seem quite keen to book all the major holidays to themselves because in an ideal scenario, no film would want to compete with a Salman Khan starrer because of his cult status. He is the only Indian actor to have 3 films which have grossed more than 300 crores in Indian box office. Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai are three of his biggest blockbusters continuously with a slight hinch from his 2017 EID flop Tubelight directed by Kabir Khan.
